We spend so much time waiting in life. Waiting to finish school, waiting to find a job, waiting in line at the supermarket, waiting in the waiting room!

In these pages, I hope to be able to recount God’s blessings and Hand on my life, to relive happy memories and to deal with all the bad ones too.
